Fox Clarifies Tuesday Night Lineup, Includes ‘X Factor’


ALTFollowing their “total f up” on Wednesday, when a baseball rain delay messed up an airing of the X Factor, Fox has released a new schedule clarifying the changes in Tuesday night’s TV lineup.

This Tuesday, Oct. 23, Fox will air new episodes of Raising Hope, Ben and Kate, New Girl, and the complete “Judges’ Homes” hour-long X Factor episode that was supposed to air Wednesday.

Kicking off at 8 ET/PT, Melanie Griffith, Wilmer Valderrama and Leslie Jordan guest-star on Raising Hope. In the episode, “If A Ham Falls in the Woods,” Jimmy (Lucas Neff) and Sabrina (Shannon Woodward) attend a marriage retreat led by a priest (Jordan) before they get married. Not wanting to miss out on a free vacation, Virginia (Martha Plimpton) and Burt (Garret Dillahunt) pose as a newly engaged couple so they can also attend. It becomes a true family affair when Sabrina’s mom, Tamara (Griffith), and her young lover, Ricardo (Valderrama), tag along.

On Ben and Kate’s “Emergency Kit,” Kate (Dakota Johnson) challenges Ben (Nat Faxon) to be more prepared to take care of Maddie (Maggie Elizabeth Jones), and they all end up getting tested. Meanwhile, Ben’s crazy ex-girlfriend, Louise (guest star Lindsay Sloane), makes a surprise visit back into his life and BJ (Lucy Punch) might be developing real feelings for her boss, bar owner Buddy (guest star Rob Corddry).

On New Girl’s “Models,” Jess (Zooey Deschanel) spends a wild night out with Cece (Hannah Simone) and her model friends, then jumps in the driver’s seat when she must fill in for Cece at a car show. Meanwhile, the guys question what defines male friendship after Schmidt (Max Greenfield) buys Nick (Jake Johnson) a sweet gift.

And at 9:30 ET/PT, Fox will air the complete “Judges’ Homes” episode of the X Factor, where the judges reveal which four acts in each of the four categories – Teens, Young Adults, Groups and Over 25s – continue on to the live shows.
